NARCISSISM AND WHITE PAIN
The White Male and the Masculinity Crisis—Again
Humiliation is so injurious to the psyche, so threatening to the self, that it must be healed. When that sense of self is gendered, it is masculinity that must be restored. Anger and rage are the translation of that humiliation into the potential for action. And anger can mobilize the self to retrieve and restore the individual’s sense of masculinity through any means possible, including violence.
– Michael Kimmel (2013: 75–76)
